Swiss Deli at Matina in Davao is a reliable and reasonable place to eat European food and the delicatessen department at the entrance is a little heaven for expats in Davao. I often eat a late lunch there and I am very happy with the solid standard of the food. And the kind and service minded staff adds an extra little dimension to the place. Another restaurant under same ownership is Picobillo in Illustre St, an Italian Restaurant with same solid standard. It’s a pity that it will close in mid February. I sincerely hope that it will be possible to find a new good location for it. If it disappears Davao will lose an institution.

Basically a great Deli with great stuff,that you can not find any were else!Well,now there is S&R in Davao,so some of the GOOD stuff there is now also available in S&R! The restaurants food was GOOD QUALITY and tasty food!The presentation was a bit BORING! Service was a little better than average for this type of restaurant! And LAST but not least the place really needs a makeover! Come on Swiss Deli, with all those outlets and places you sell your products to,you have got to UPGRADE your Restaurant! A little paint,some new lighting fixtures,new upholstery and PLEASE UPDATE your bathroom,toilet or CR,that's how they call it here in the Philippines! You'll see,this Investment will pay off! Thank you!

First of all i want to say that Swiss Deli is an absolute godsent in Davao, their deli shop being the only place where you can find quality European (and local) delicacies in this part of the world, some of it at a fraction of the price you'd pay for the same quality in Europe.
Now for the food in the restaurant (i went to the Matina branch). It's simple, unpretentious Pan-European food, nothing outstanding but inexpensive, tasty and good value.
We tried the Ravioli which were okay, a nice seafood risotto, fish terrine and very tasty French onion soup. All of this with a bottle of nice Chilean white came to less than 1500 Php, a real steal, especially for wines, which you can buy at the deli shop and consume for a corkage of only 150 Php.
Good service by Filipino standards, but the ambiance is more canteen than cozy restaurant.

This place is always part of the intinerary when visiting Davao and have never been disappointed. A good place to go to get a break and have a good European meal with wine and/or something cold to drink.
Absolutely recommended and they have a well equipped Deli and wine cellar in addition to the restaurant

Thank dagol
